Well written and a good story line.

What I felt was lacking in this story was Gordon's character development -- although I liked him, there was nothing memorable about him either.
I read the first 4 books in the last 24 hours.

This will be brief as all my reviews tend to be. The truth is this book is dull and it doesn't get interesting until the end of the book. And I hated the ending But then again I read romance novels because I love cinderalla endings. The characters are not funny, nor intriguing in anyway they are just there! Boring Boring Boring, but I did manage to actully finish this book so that is better then some. However save your money and re-read a classic like Elizabeth Lowell. I will try another of this authers book just to give her a second chance. In the end the book is just that OK noting more.

Gordon Lachlan is a Scottish warrior seeking to avenge his father's death, his sister's ruin and his clansman losing almost everything. He wants justice in the worst way and feels the Sword of the MacKenna is what he needs to rally his men and fight the English. The sword is currently with the Duke of Closter, in order for Gordon to get it back he decides to kidnap the Duke's sister-in-law. He will then send a ransom note to exchange the girl for the sword.

Constance Cameron is the youngest of three sisters who came to England from their Ohio Valley home. Her sisters have found love and have been married, now that's all they want for her. She has been residing at a ladies school and has decided she has had enough of the ton and this country, she wants to go home. She plans her escape and as she is sneaking off school grounds, is kidnapped by Gordon and taken to his Highland home.

Neither one is what the other expects and they find themselves drawn to each other. As Constance realizes she can't escape, and not for lack of trying, she begins to enjoy the clan and the Scottish open air. She begins to admire her captor.

This is the third book in a series and I have enjoyed every one of them, entirely. The Cameron sisters have been a unique group of women set upon the London ton; and each sister added something fresh to the historical romance genre. Constance was by the far the most engaging of the sisters. She is not a docile captive and the banter and battles between her and Gordon and had me enthralled from page one.

The ending was in danger of getting a little too cheesy for my tastes, but thankfully it never fully fromaged. ;) I eagerly anticipate Gordon's sister Fiona's story, Seduction of a Highland Mistress, this winter. Enjoy!

Set in Scotland, 1808, the Highland laird Gordon Lachlan has lost much and he is desperate to rally the people to fight back against the English. He knows that if he can obtain the legendary Sword of the MacKenna - it would bring hope to his down-trodden people. In order to retrieve the sword he planned to kidnap Constance Cameron from her remote boarding school knowing that by her family ties to the Duke of Colster, would make him honor bound to exchange her for the sword.

Constance Cameron hated England, Scotland and especially the strictures placed upon her by the headmistress of her school who tried to erase all of her American barbarianism and turn Constance into a lady. Constance was determined to run away and return to her beloved Ohio Valley in America, but on her way to freedom she was snatched up by Gordon Lachlan who dragged her deeper into the Highlands. Furious at having her plans thwarted, Constance was anything but the meek and compliant young miss Gordon was expecting did not appear. Instead, she was exactly what Gordon and his clan needed to bring harmony and order to his clan, and a passion long thought gone to this Highlander's bed.

*** Cathy Maxwell continues to churn out some very delectable historical romances, and though the kidnapped captive falls in love with her captor theme has been used over and over again, Maxwell's descriptive writing, smart dialogs, and lovely characterizations keep you entertained throughout. Although the plot is common enough, the characters were brought wholly to life. In my opinion, Constance's feisty and adventuresome, roll-with-the-punches attitude really dominated the story, once she became convinced and committed to Gordon's cause.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is a very simple story of a kidnap victim who falls in love with her honourable captor (if 'honourable' and 'kidnapper' can be part of the same character!). Constance Cameron is a young American woman who wants to run away from the boarding school in Edinburgh in which she has been placed by her two sister, heroines of previous books by this author. As Constance finally escapes the school she is kidnapped by a Scottish man, Gordon Lachlan, the leader of a rebellion.

Constance is unlike most women that Gordon has previously met, being spirited and resourceful. She tries to escape him at all opportunities as she wants to sail back to America on a ship that leaves Edinburgh in four days. However once Constance is taken to Gordon's camp her attitude seems to change remarkably quickly - she agrees to join their rebellion and helps to organise the camp. There's a healthy dose of unrealism here where one short speech by Constance is enough to change the entire mood of the camp. Constance also facilitates the breaking down of barriers between Gordon and his half-sister, Fiona, who was the victim of an attack by English soldiers and who partly blames Gordon.

Constance is meant to be exchanged for the Sword of the MacKenna, a symbol for the rebellion. Of course, when the time comes for the sword to be exchanged, Gordon isn't so sure that it's an easy trade. With a price on his head and his people relying on him for their future, what chance does he have with Constance?

This book was a reasonable enough read with a variety of characters and some local colour. The historicity and geography go a little awry occasionally and Gordon's ability to give up his long-held rebellion plans seem a little hasty but it didn't ever become boring and Constance was a worthy heroine.
